Can we really do "this" any longer?

I'm young like the OP and I feel the same way. We can't continue doing what we are doing now for more than a few generations or society will destroy itself.

Everyone wants to create, build and contribute something to society. If you feel you have no purpose in life then it will inevitably lead to feelings of apathy and depression.

When you wake up in the morning and know you are going to do something worthwhile in this world, this is the best feeling in the world. This is what leads to happiness and fullfillment.

Younger generations are starting to realize there is something seriously wrong with our society. More people now than ever are awake, ready and eager to change the way we live.

Here is one example. Today's society is more environmentally aware and trying to limit pollution. I don't know if others feel the same way but a small thing like this gives me some hope for the future.

Change won't happen overnight. It will take baby steps and build on itself. Everyone will have to make the choice to switch from A to B.

My idea of utopia is a world without money, mass media, belief systems, politicians, war, violence and pollution. The world can't stay the same. Look at how it's changed compared to a 100 years ago.
